Three two unleashes the full power of an inch and Falcon Nine Go action and we’re left with what we just saw, axerophthol Mission 2 a private astronaut mission to the International Space Station and an important step toward developing the first commercial space station could be.
There may possibly be a successor to the ISS but what kind of arrangement is axerophthol with SpaceX what will be the impact on the astronauts and what do they hope to achieve with this current mission let’s go straight to the mission and the steps of the landing lake deployment Stand in.
SpaceX’s increasing precision with each launch never ceases to amaze the X2 mission using the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon capsule and flying from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, as the crew docks with the International Space Station this week But ready to stay for a week.
This is the second mission that SpaceX has officially completed for Axiom Space, following an agreement the two companies signed in 2021. Axiom Space, a company that arranges private astronaut missions, made an arrangement with SpaceX to fly three crewed missions to the ISS using SpaceX.
The latter was expanded to four missions and all are expected to be completed before the end of this year and SpaceX is already doing well on its end of the deal. The first mission for the Axiom Space or X1 took place a year ago on April 8, when SpaceX launched a four-person crew that included a former NASA astronaut and three other paid astronauts.
The first mission was originally scheduled to last 10 days to give the crew enough time to conduct all necessary testing, but was later extended to 17 days because bad weather at the splashdown site meant that The crew could not land safely. Or at least not without much difficulty now that the first launch is out of the way and SpaceX has completed most of its pending launches.
Hua and launched four crew members to the ISS and also took the Crew Dragon capsule, which was named 16 Hours of Freedom for this mission, to tour the space station and it finally landed on 22 May. . docked to the orbiting laboratory and will bring the crew back.
By the end of May on Earth if everything goes according to plan but you can never be sure because when it comes to space travel there are many elements you have to consider like weather but also the possibility of flight But when Liberty undocks with the crew onboard, it will return to Earth and splash down in the ocean off the coast of Florida, while the four AX2 crew members remain on station.
They will carry the eggs to the space station along with other astronauts. It has as its mission commander Peggy Whitson, a former NASA astronaut who has spent more time in space than any other woman or any other American, spending a total of 665 days in space and a total of 10 spacewalks.
The mission of more than 60 hours in total will make Whitson the first female commander of a privately funded mission in orbit, adding to the already dazzling accomplishments she has spent nearly 40 years in the spaceflight industry and serving as a NASA astronaut. have been Served as Chief of Office.
Axiom’s director of human spaceflight Axiom is starting to use experienced astronauts to lead its missions as the company tapped retired NASA astronaut Michael Lopez Alegria to lead the charge on the first Mission X And the setup probably won’t be changing anytime soon since NASA.
The private mission included Rihanna Banawi, the first Saudi woman to fly in space, along with Ali Alkani, who also represents Saudi Arabia, and crew member John Schoffner, who serves as a pilot. Were. Will work too. for the mission and if this mission is successful it will play a role in Axiom’s plan to take the economy outside of Earth to new heights.
We want this to be the beginning of a new era where the innovation we are shipping will grow exponentially. We’re sending government and commercial passengers into orbit to get more and more people into orbit and generally go beyond opening space to humanity, you can’t join a crew on a space shuttle and Can go directly to space or ISS.
made significant achievements in space travel and now as other commercial enterprises are trying to do the same space travel becomes more and more accessible to the general public and I think everyone will agree that today we It’s not possible without the number of private missions we see SpaceX is making an early headway.
Axiom Space is one of a number of private companies now trying to take advantage of the change in space travel in Axiom’s vision, basically building your own space station in low Earth orbit that you can use as a government official. The company is already taking steps to start its commercial space station operations and this is one of the first things it is going to do.
Launching multiple modules or hardware to the ISS, until the fourth module reaches ISS Axim. Will have sufficient capacity to be an independent free-flight outpost and will separate itself from the ISS when the last three modules are delivered and the facility is complete, becoming an upgraded version of the ISS with crew quarters and a dedicated manufacturing and research facility. Will happen. Laboratory and increased payload capacity Axiom is planned in such a way that its space station will be up and running until the ISS is decommissioned.
It could easily establish itself as an attractive alternative to private companies or even government agencies. To send astronauts to low earth orbit, but this is not the only project Axiom is working on, it seems the company is also developing its own spacesuits capable of supporting astronauts during moonwalks . And there are plans to sell it to potential customers like NASA as soon as possible.
The suits are ready in 2024. Axiom will also use these suits on its space station to complete its development, it also helps that NASA has already awarded his company a contract to develop new lunar surface spacesuits that will be used by the agency.
In addition Moon Exploration Aerospace Company also takes the time to organize a training infrastructure to provide advice and services to any country that wishes to expand its human space flight capability, but does not have access to the Axiom space station or any of its spacesuits.
And ready to go because they’ll need a lot of data before they’ll be able to build and operate the space station, they’ll also need a lot of other equipment that’s durable and flexible enough to withstand the challenges of outer space. I think we are entering a new era of space exploration that is very exciting and it is not just SpaceX but many other companies that have developed new approaches and are doing a lot to continue this new era of space travel.
Over the next 10 days, the AX2 crew will have their work cut out for them and their stay on the space station will be anything but a vacation. The four-member team will conduct more than 20 experiments to fully understand human physiology in the classroom. The more information they can collect, the easier it will be for the company to develop better technologies that can be used both on Earth and for future space flight purposes.
But the company isn’t the only one using its tests for the mission, they are partnering with universities and research centers like the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, King Ford University of Petroleum and Minerals, and the Saudi Space Commission to study climate change on the ISS. Are. We study alternative communication methods for astronauts and investigate the effects of microgravity on humans when you spend a lot of time in space.
Spinal alopecia causes a lot of negative effects on your body such as rear motor changes and muscle atrophy, so research agencies are always running tests to reduce these effects to maintain the quality of life of astronauts, So when exactly will the next mission be this year SpaceX still has two more missions to complete and luckily NASA has already signed on for the third and it won’t be before November for the XXX mission.
The crew will spend two weeks on the ISS but there is some provision for the crew to spend an additional week depending on weather conditions as they prepare to return. There is no information about the mission or its pay as to who will lead the passengers on the mission, but as soon as NASA approves a crew for the mission.
But it will be announced. SpaceX is set to step up the ax3 mission, it will launch Polaris Dawn, a mission financed and commanded by billionaire Jared Isaacs, on Monday summer and NASA’s crewed 7 missions will follow soon after in August.
